The map reflects the spatial combination of sites designated under national instruments and Natura 2000 sites. In France Natura 2000 extends significantly beyond existing national designations, as shown by the extend of light green on the map. As compared to the map showing the overlap with only IUCN categories I to IV, its is obvious that, particularly in th South-eastern part of France, several Natura 2000 sites overlap with nationally designated sites under categories V and VI. There are also a large part of nationally designated sites under IUCN V and VI which are not designated as Natura 2000 as reflected by the blue dots on the map.

When you'd like to get rid of large waste items, take it to a drop-off centre or contact a special company to come and pick it up. The professionals will segregate and possibly recycle your waste. Some products, including refrigerators and other electric appliances, have to be recycled properly not to pollute the environment. You can also use the internet or newspapers to sell goods which still have some value.
